Presidential hopeful Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY) came to her Fox News town hall ready to rumble on Sunday, getting into scrapes with host Chris Wallace about gender equality and abortion as he interrupted her comments.
She garnered raucous applause after her parries on inclusion and intersectionality.
“We want women to have a seat at the table,” Gillibrand said.
Wallace interrupted: “What about men?”
“They’re already there,” Gillibrand shot back, “do you not know? It’s not meant to be exclusionary, it’s meant to be inclusionary.”
She also did not hold back on Fox News’ coverage of the abortion debate, accusing the network of spreading a “false narrative” around the issue.
Wallace again cut her off. “I understand, maybe, to make your credentials with the Democrats who are not appearing on Fox News, you want to attack us, I’m not sure it’s frankly very polite when we’ve invited you to be here,” he snapped.
